Battlefronts new figures
« on: May 27, 2017, 04:35:39 AM »
Just picked up the new weird bendy plastic Battlefront 8th Army figures, including the 88 and 17/25pdr plastic kits with the bendy plastic crew.  BLOODY HORRIBLE FIGURES.  Already ordered replacement guns crews from Peter Pig.

Good for PP figure sales if that opinion continues with the purchasers.

Which figures did you order for 88 crew?

PSC probably laughing too as for 1.50 more their 25pdr box includes 2 sets of crew and Quads.

I just ordered the Afrika Korps gun crew and I'm still going to use the one battlefront blob head holding the rangefinder.

I suppose that will obscure the absence of facial detail

I did a quick video of Battlefront blob heads v Peter Pig.  The PP Afrika Korps are heaps smaller than BF so I won't be able to mix them on the same base.

Looks like i had better get to work on some DAK?
Video reviews are the way to go for full information.
thanks

Please do I'd buy loads if they were in the style of the late war Germans which I will paint a fair few up as DAK regardless.

The next release of low quality plastics are the yanks so we need some updated Peter Pig AT and artillery crews.

Martins new video figure reviews.

Who is this other second rate manufacturer anyway, when we have so many excellent PP products.
